The Harwell Space Cluster has released its 10-year growth strategy with the ambition to reach 200 organisations collectively employing 5,000 people by 2030.

Looking at the next ten years, the focus is on four core areas:

  • increased investment in the gateway capabilities of the cluster
  • broadening application of expertise and open access facilities to address complex challenges
  • strengthening the existing skills, facilities, and business support pipeline
  • increasing engagement globally to create even more opportunities for international collaboration and market access.

Dr Joanna Hart, Development Manager for the Harwell Space Cluster, said: “Now is the time to act, particularly as we look at the post-COVID-19 landscape. By leveraging our brand, networks, global reach, expertise, and facilities in service of national priorities, the cluster will secure sustainable growth for the UK space sector.
